A flirty standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy!
One night with him will change her life...
Between her waitressing job, volunteer work, and college classes, there are never enough hours in Maggie Reilly’s day. Especially not for a relationship. Luckily, she’s got the perfect arrangement: a lover she meets three or four times a year. But when she shows up at the hotel expecting to hop into bed with one man, she accidentally ends up with another—Ben Barrett, Hollywood’s most notorious bad boy.Ben, determined to lay low after another scandal, just wants some much-needed sleep. What he gets is a scorching make-out session with a gorgeous, naked redhead. He won’t accept her apology, but what he will accept is a place to hide out…and if there’s some hot, no-strings sex involved, why the heck not?But Ben soon discovers that one week with his sassy, bed-hopping waitress is definitely not enough. He wants more. A lot more.Now he needs to convince relationship-averse Maggie that a bad boy might be oh so good for her—and the best thing that’s ever happened to both of them.
Previously published in 2008, Bad Apple (formerly Midnight Encounters) features almost entirely new content, including a point-of-view switch. Enjoy this new version of an old favorite!
4 Bed Hopping Stars ⭐️
When Maggie’s booty call goes embarrassingly wrong, she finds herself in the wrong man’s bed.
With barely her pride intact she never expected the mystery man to seek her out with her lost panties in hand.
“Okay, so I molested a man whose name I don’t even know. Big deal. He’d liked it. I liked it too. Nobody was harmed. And we’ll probably never cross paths again, so really, what harm had been done?”
All Ben Barrett wants is some sleep. Is that too much to ask? But as a famous celebrity, it’s a tall order in New York. Although waking to a gorgeous redhead with his dick in hand isn’t a bad way to go, until she flees. Fortunately she left her work details and panties behind. How’s a man to resist?
Finding Maggie is easy but convincing her to give him her time and potentially her bed is another matter.
Maggie does not have the time or inclination for a playboy that speaks in riddles and wants to be her temporary roommate, until he makes his intentions very clear…..
“I don’t want to deflower you. I want to fuck you.” His voice takes on a seductive note. “Eight days. For the next eight days I’ll fuck your brains out. Anything you want me to do to you, I’ll do. Anytime you want it, you’ll have it.”
Bad Apple was a real treat and a great way to spend a couple of hours away from reality. Beneath all the sexy scenes, we get a beautiful story of a girl that’s never known love and a boy that is surrounded by people that pretend to care. With a lot of perseverance, I loved that they both got their HEA.
